Is Evolution Just a Theory?

English scientist Charles Darwin introduced the theory of evolution through natural selection in 1859 with the publication of his book "On the Origin of Species". This started a fierce argument among nineteenth-century scientists but the massive evidence coming from various other branches of science established evolution's truth beyond a reasonable doubt before the twentieth century.

If We Evolved from Monkeys Why Are There Still Monkeys?

After the publication of "On the Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin, Evolution through natural selection was rather quickly adopted by scientists. However, in its infancy scientists imagined evolution as linear and progressive. Early expectation in scientific communities was that modern humans evolved from existing ape populations gradually, and that there had to be fossil evidence that link humans to apes.
